St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be fashionable as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, simply because of the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties replacing the olden wooden bridge. Heacham remains popular nowadays as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being replete with caravan parks.

The beaches in this area are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, meaning it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is in all probability more than 5 millenia since the earliest settlers emerged in the region around Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of that. Human settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was almost certainly not till the fifth century when the 1st true village was established there. The name is said to be derived from the name of a local Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any strong evidence that this is true. The other thought is that the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Noted in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage consisted of 143 households (quite large for this times) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne.

It was thereafter controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet within the church remind visitors of the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nonetheless she left behind a son called Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.
